Helping to make a difference
True to our word, we have been making musicians since we first opened in 1964. Andertons passionately support a number of local and national charities, sponsoring education, events, artists, music clubs and venues.
We also have our chosen charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust. In particular, we’ve always tried to positively impact those close to home by making music more accessible.
Here are just a few examples of our work:
- In November 2019 Andertons donated a whole shipment of musical instruments and accessories to the Teenage Cancer Trust ward located at the Royal Marsden hospital in Surrey
- In September 2019, Andertons generously donated 25 guitars to the local Surrey Music Hub, thanks to a partnership with Musical futures
- We’re long standing supporters of Music for all and together in 2014 we helped to raise over £20,000
- We have long championed Learn to play day, encouraging the next generation of musicians
Proud to support the Teenage Cancer Trust
Andertons have supported the Teenage Cancer Trust since 2017 raising well over £10,000 in the process. By way of leveraging our popular YouTube channel, we’ve traditionally used April Fools as a charity fundraiser. Here are some of our previous efforts:
Who are the Teenage Cancer Trust?
The Teenage Cancer Trust create world-class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care so those affected don’t have to face cancer alone. Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. The Teenage Cancer Trust is dedicated to making sure they get expert treatment and aid throughout their battle.
Why are we helping?
Not only is music a massive part of teenagers’ lives, it’s at the heart of the Teenage Cancer Trust. The TCT annual Royal Albert Hall concerts are the pinnacle of their long-established music heritage and this affiliation with music made the TCT an obvious choice for Andertons. We’re proud to help.
